Metal Phindy

I've made a card that isn't a DT card....OMG! Not much of THAT happening at the moment.
It is coming into summer here in NZ and we're having beautiful hot sunny days and I want to get out in the garden or out with the dogs.  However, the dogs are looking for cool spots right now...Abbie & Brodie keeping me company at the computer! Talk about a pile of puppies! For once Brodie is leaving Abbie alone and not hassling her to play.
Golden Pile-up

My card is for Phindy's Challenge, using a phindy image and some metal (photo frame corners and flower brad which I've coloured with copics as it was silver). I love these Mrs Comfy images from Phindy, that's one huge dog she has!
Paper is Scribble Scrabble I think, ribbon is SU, button from a local shop and the MS punched border has a BG paper border stuck on top.

Gretchen in Pink & Facebook Attitude!

This week at Digi's With Attutude! Challenge blog the challenge is to use Pink, Black & Silver.  Pink isn't a colour I use a lot but, I spose a change is good!   I've used Grumpy Gretchen Tres Chic guessed it, there's a poodle in the pic!  What a nicely clipped dog it is too!LOL!
The paper is a mix of kaisercraft and K & Co, the hearts, tulle and crystal stem from my stash. The lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts. Its a pretty simple card this week!
Now head on over to the challenge blog to see what everyone else has created for your inspiration.

The challenge this week at Digi's With Attitude ! is to make a card for your favourite sports team or for someone who loves sports. The image we've used is Grumpy Gretchen- cheerleader which you can purchase HERE.
I started off thinking I would do a card for one of our national teams ie Black &/or White....but then as I was playing with paper I thought, why not my favourite agility!!  Go Hawera Dog Training! Burgundy and black are our colours and our dogs are multicoloured! 
 Yes I run two poodles and a golden retriever and I get wisecracks about both...but then we all tease each other about our choice of breed!  We have so much fun when we all travel to a show, camp or motel together, cheer each other on ,  play with each others dogs...bliss!!!! I think we need a team of cheerleaders

The poodle is off a key chain that fell to pieces so thought I would recycle it. The paper is Kaisercraft, the swirl is a Marianne diecut, ribbon is from my stash and of course I've coloured with copics.
Time to head on over to the challenge blog and check out these girls with Attitude , and why not join in !

Favourite Colour(s)

This week at Southern Girls we are challenging you to use your favourite colour. How hard is that? Well, damned hard actually cos my fav changes from day to day! But  I'm an earth colour girl at heart as you may have noticed and this is one of my favourite colour combos. Olive green soothes me! LOL!  And of course what better colours to use with this fantastic image from the talented Zoe at  Make it Crafty who is one of our sponsors this fortnight. I love her quirky house images!
  I went a bit crazy with my viva pearl pens and decorated the white flowers around the edges....whaddya think?
The paper is BG Pyrus, the flowers & leaves from my stash, and the flower centres are Prima and the ribbon I recycled off a birthday pressie and that's about it!
My teamies have used some of Zoe's other images but this is one I bought some time ago and I think its my fav so far, or maybe the mushroom, or maybe the boot house...........!!!! Hop on over to the challenge blog to see some amazing work as always!
 Our second sponsor is Scrapbook Outlet for NZ & Aus entrants in the challenge.

Girls can do anything!

Gretchen is a woman-of -all-trades!
This week at Digi's With Attitude! Challenge we have a recipe for you to follow  and we have used Grumpy Gretchen Mechanic which you can purchase for the Digi's With Attitude! Store.
Recipe is easy peasy
- 2 patterned papers
- 1 ribbon
- use Sparkle!!!!

I've used some Bo Bunny papers and coloured with copics. The ribbon is from my stash, the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pin is from Bunny Zoe. I've added Stickles Diamond to everything for some sparkle. OK, kinda girly I spose but she's in overalls so we have to balance it out somehow! LOL!

Head on over to the challenge blog , we have a load of fab cards there from the DT and our 4 wonderful GDT!

Life is Great!!!!

OK, my mum has to be the bestest! Not only did she take that thing off my head cos she knew she could trust me not to lick my toe (" hahaha" evil doggie laugh!) but she took me for a playdate with my bestest buddy Solly on Saturday and we had FUN!!!!! Life is good, life is great, now I just gotta convince the cat that a game of chase would be hilarious!    Luv & licks, Brodie.

Yee Haaa!!

Howdy there pardners! Time for another Digi's With Attitude! challenge and this week we see the release of Grumpy Gretchen Cowgirl. The theme this week is " Anything Western" .  Quite a challenge for me ......hmmmm!
Cindy-Lynn will be releasing several images every week so there are loads more Digi's With Attitude appearing. Check them out HERE 

I've used some Tim Holtz Retro papers here and cut out the stars from a sheet. The Howdy paper was a freebie from somewhere ...sorry, can't remember where I found it!  I've distressed edges and inked with vintage paper  distress ink, and glittered over that with stickles. The bling is prima, the eyelets are SU  and the string is some I just happened to have lying around.
 I've coloured Gretchen with copics as usual.

Please take note that Digi's With Attitude! is now offering a $10.00 gift certificate for every winner (to a max of 4) EVERY WEEK!   Pop on over to the challenge blog and check out what  the rest of the DT plus 4 guest designers have created.
